Angelina Jolie & Sarah Jessica Parker: Highest Paid Actresses!

Angelina Jolie and Sarah Jessica Parker share the crown for Forbes‘ latest list of Hollywood’s highest paid actresses!

The two actresses tied for the top spot, each bringing in an estimated $30 million.

Coming in third was Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, who both earned $28 million, followed by Julia Roberts and Kristen Stewart with $20 million.

    I’m so happy for SJP. People are so mean about her, so its nice to hear some good news. I’m not surprised she literally made a whole decade hers with SATC. congrats to them all! LOVE Reese and Julia too!

    This isn’t exactly highest paid, but who made the most this year. You have to factor in how many movies each actress makes per year, if they are starring or making a guest appearance, etc. Angelina makes a huge amount, and Reese(god knows why). She made 20 mil for her horrible movie with Owen Wilson, and Jack Nicolson, the legend, made 1/10th of her salary.

    This latest top ranking is so full of sh*t, other than Angie being #1 that is, LOL….unless they know what Aniston was paid for booty hunter or jgwi (and I suspect she was single digit mils for both), she is not even close to being in the top 5, let alone #3.
    See, what used to happen is that they’d compare a REAL film actress’s per film take (i.e., Angelina and her 20 million dollar salary for SALT, for instance) against TV hack-iston and all her tacky endorsement monies, tv residuals, and ensemble ’supporting’ rom com salaries…basically the kitchen sink, just to get Maniston up there and ranked.
    Peole knew she was desperate, and trying to save face in the years post her BP dumping…they knew she was partaking in a rivalry that existed only in her own mind, so they let her and Huvane resort to trickery/bribery/palm greasing/pleading to get her on these phony asss’d lists.
    Usually other actresses had too much pride to count up all their pennies and do the same thing. They probably thought it laughable the bish was twisting herself into pretzel to ‘compete,’ w/ Angelina. lolol But I think NOW, they look at this ish, in her going on 7TH YEAR (!!) of this bullh*t, and are syin ENOUGH!
    They didn’t feel the need to scrape up every little paycheck for every little endorsement deal, side part, backend deal, and turn their stubs into Forbes to squash Maniston, no.1) because no sane person tries to roll w/ Angelina anyway, and 2)adding up all their twos and fews and endorsements, etc., wouldn’t be an HONEST representation of ‘highest paid,’ actress anyway. They left the desperation moves to Maniston and her PR flack Hvane.
    HOWEVER, it appears other actresses, are getting damned sick of Maniston/Huvane’s ONGOING neverending tricks…and at LEAST, Sarah Jessica Parker is taking a page out of Huvane’s & Maniston’s dirty playbook – getting in the ball game with her own PR, and apparently saying ‘look, if you’re gonna throw Rachel Green and her tacky tv kitchen sink in the mix with Angelina, Reese and Cameron – you can add my asss in their as well. My clothing line, perfume, movies and TV residuals all outrank and outsell hers!!” LOL
    It’s about time these other actresses got as sneaky and manipulative as Queen Huvaniston…next up should be J.Lo, who also outranks any and all itlle penny anty sh*t Maniston is doing with her bottled water and perfume gig. Witherspoon, did two high profile films and got paid accordingly as LEAD, and had her AVON endorsement, Diaz has endorsements, and she’s always a lead, and what about Sandra Bullock??!! It’s obvious Forbes is run by PR flacks to desperados, and they just use Angelina’s name to get hits and as a bellweather to other desperate actresses, meanwhile Angie not only is not turning over sh*t or responding to their little polls at all, she’s probably OBLIVIOUS to this b.s……meanwhile Manny and her people are probably on the phone with Forbes, pleading, and cajoling day in and day out.

    If Kristen Stewart is on the list with $20 million, where is Emma Watson (who surely earns more)?

    R u mad? Says:

    With all that money you’d think Angelina would take better care of herself. She looks worn out and very unhappy most of the time. Angelina really needs to come out of the closet. We all know she’s gay.

    HUH? Says:

    FORBES is full of ***** as usual and just try to gin up attention. AJ made way more than $30 million in that time period and JA made way less. Aniston gets $5 million MAX a film and she made 2 films in that time. JA NEVER gets back end while Angie is collecting first money % from WANTED, SALT, The Tourist and both Kung Fu Panda films.

    groundcontrol Says:

    Yes, I agree about Emma Watson. She has made a huge sum of money. Probably way ahead of the others.
    I also agree Angelina probably received monies from at least Salt in 2010 and possibly still some Wanted monies. Who knows? Surely Forbes doesn’t know.
    No idea when she received money for Tourist [makes sense to count it in 2010 income] which started filming in 2010. I’m sure her directorial and writing fees for Land of Blood and Honey are negligible.

    @an oldie:
    Jen Aniston is going to be working overtime making bland movies and hocking her perfume, because I believe the sitcom residuals expired last year.

    LOL, one thing for sure, Julia wont be happy when she see this.

    @12 Says:

    Emma hasn’t acted in anything blockbuster since 2009 when she was paid for the last Potter. Kristen just finished breaking dawn this year so her earning counts this year. She also has back door gross payments which could total another $10 after both franchises come out in 2012. I don’t think we see Emma on these type of lists ever again.

    MJ Says:

    @R u mad?: Why did you say that Angie is unhappy? Do you want her to always smile/laugh even there is no reason to do it? Angie is a normal person, only the one with a mental issues/bipolar who can smile with no reason/s cause she thinks she is still a little girl, a happy and very lucky little girl. Angie is a mature woman who is focus on her family unlike the 42 years old woman who always still describe herself as a little girl. And how about you? do you smile all the time even with no reason to? If you do, there must be something wrong with you. You must see a psychiatrist as soon as possible. Good luck!

    Also, Angie ranked number 11 on The World’s Most Powerful Celebrities. And Maniston? She came in at number 21. Even SJP is at number 73. If you look at where Angie ranks for the Web she is at number 4! Only after Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, and Katy Perry, in that order. Where does Maniston rank? Number 19. Ha!
